College football season starts this week -- Thursday night, in fact -- so it's no surprise that national publications in recent days are dropping their best preseason works of journalism on readers.

On Monday, we told you about the New York Times' three-part series about the power ESPN holds in college football.

Today, two Alabama-centric stories are making the rounds and are worth your time. (Yes, even if you're not a Crimson Tide fan.)

At GQ.com, writer Warren St. John has written an excellent and revealing profile of Alabama Coach Nick Saban, where were learn, among other things, that he really likes the Rolling Stones and isn't a fan of country music.

At the Wall Street Journal, that newspaper is diving into an odd theory -- that Alabama fans are getting bored with winning.

Any Tide fans want to go back to that 4-7 season of Mike DuBose?
